Ely High School 1905-1972 : searching these pages

This website is searchable. Bear in mind there might be variations in the spelling of names. Surname rather than full name searches might be safer.

Look at Search tips on the results page. Sometimes you get unwanted results - for example searching on Peters will also show all mentions of Peter. To prevent that, on the results page click on Advanced Search, turn off the Stemming facility ('none') and try again.

Just browsing the pages of the website can still be an entertaining way to come across the unexpected - and long forgotten!
